Taking things a day at a time

Take advantage of things more often

Today Jamika called me while she was at the cast party for Too Much Light. I think she said they were at Big C's house, I've never been there so I can't visualize the place. They passed the phone around to some people (Sunders, Bailey-Bailey, Jessica Learn, Bailey, Nick, and Chris - the new freshmen who I don't know, but he sounded/seems pretty cool) and it reminded me of when she called me last semester at the other cast party.

Well the point is that I feel like I should've gone to more of the cast parties while I was at Linfield. I think I missed the first three. Yeah, the one for Too Much Light, Learned Ladies, and Crave. Wait, was there in fact one for Bleacher Bums? Hmm, come to think of it I don't really remember going to that one either. Can anyone testify to that?? Aaaanyways, I just wish I went to more, because then I probably wouldn't have felt somewhat out-of-the-loop with the people in theatre.

Onto other things...

There was a small open window today in which my writer's block went away!! I got some material down for a possible poem that I think I'm just gonna have to run with at this point in time. I'll work on it some more, then I'll post it, or send it to you guys to get some feedback on it before I start memorizing it for the slam.

Oh, and I actually have 2 weeks until the slam. I was totally skipping an entire week, so I kinda feel silly about that.

AMAZING RACE!!! The premier tonight was all right. I really enjoy Flight Time and Big Easy, two Harlem Globetrotters. :) It's hilarious to watch these two, giant black guys, running around Asia. Being on The Amazing Race with my friend Amanda is still #1 on my 100 Things To Do Before I Die list. Haha, let's see if that actually happens.

Sing Me A Song Sunday:
"My Girl" by The Temptations.
I think every girl would like to have a girl sing this song to them. I think, in middle school, when I wrote really cheesy fanfiction, I had a guy sing this song to a girl in the story. :P Ahahaha, so corny, but, I actually wrote that, I admit it. Anywho, it's just a nice, simple, sweet song. :) One of my favorite Temptation songs.

At my work meeting today, we basically got told that there's gonna be a lot of changes with our store and that if we don't "shape up" then the tapes are going to be sent down to the big boss and he'll watch everything that goes on in our store. Also our sales are super low, less than half of what it's suppose to be at the end of the day. Christie (our temporary manager) basically told us to lie about sales to get people to buy more. That makes sense, as an employee of this business, but I'm just thinking if I was in the shoes of the customer. I wouldn't wanna be charged more than I should. There were other important things I should've remembered about the meeting but I was distracted because Heather, Kaena, Tiff, and Chandal kept talking! More so Heather and Kaena. I can't stand working with Heather. Fuck.

I just really don't wanna get fired. I think I might start looking online again for job openings on craigslist or something.

Song of the day: "What I've Been Looking For" from the Original High School Musical Cast (stage show) Yes, I still have all the HSM songs from the show we did on my itunes. Those songs are way better than the ones in the movie.

So, that sucks about work.

Also, I was at the cast party, but I was in no position to talk on the phone... a drunken phone call from me would have been scary yesterday. I could barely talk to Ben on the phone to come pick me up. Chloe had to do it for me. Also, the new Chris kid is a douche. He thinks he is all that. He is practically in LOVE with Matt. Which is cute lol. But he thinks he is the best actor and he is pretty stuck up. So far, he is not real popular in the theatre dept.

Good luck with the poetry slam!

Oh, I totally forgot. I am pretty sure you went to the BB cast party. I remember you being there. I think I have a picture of us from it. Also, there was the Zaida good bye party. That was fun... and sad.

so i think your manager was lying to you about sending the tapes to the big boss person so that he could watch them. I just can't picture someone that important in a company wasting his time looking at tapes of one store. But I understand your fear of being fired, I would probably be the same way. And yay to beating writer's block! If you write a little every day, even if it's a journal entry, it really helps. I should take my own advice...I don't write as much as I should. But...yeah. that's all!
